Default Re: Can Batman escape the "Third Act Curse"?

There are a number of pitfalls third installments fall into, and I'm particularly thinking of Spider-Man 3 and X-Men: The Last Stand: shoving too many characters and elements into the film, placing fan service above proper plot construction, and emphasizing spectacle over character development, thereby forgetting what people loved about the previous movies. If Nolan and co. sidestep those mistakes, yes, they can overcome the supposed "curse."

Do not accept checks from:
Chief Wiggum - Reverend Lovejoy - Homer J. Simpson - Homer S. Simpson - H.J. Simpson - Homor Simpson - Homer J. Fong
